“Typical Souvenir Shop”
Review of Souvenir City

Ranked #1 of 9 Shopping in Gulf Shores

Reviewed September 30, 2012

Obviously, the entrance to the place is unique. That being said, it is the only unique thing about the place. They have the typical souvenir fare, only a lot more of it. I really expected to see some different things here, but it was more of the same sand in a bottle, keychains with your name on them, shells, sand dollars and t-shirts. Nothing more or less than you can get at any side of the road souvenir place along hwy 59. In fact, I think it's too much. And the parking is ridiculous. If you drive a larger vehicle, you would have to park in the lot at the Purple Octopus because you may not have room to get out if you park at Souvenir City.

Love going here each time that we are in Gulf Shores. Generally, if you want something for a souvenir - they have it. Although, I have noticed the last few years that the more unique things for Gulf Shores have been more and more replaced with the standard souvenirs that you see most places you go, just with Gulf Shore stamped on them. I was really dissappointed with the Jeff Foxworthy Redneck items which while unique, didn't really seem like they belong in a souvenir store, especially here. This store has been through alot of things over the year with a fire, storms, and hurricanes - I hope that they will not let crappy souvenirs which are nothing but junk ruin what has been a wonderful shopping locations in Gulf Shores. I go here each time but hope to be a better selection next time of true unique souvenirs like they once had.

First of all, the parking is HORRIBLE!!!!!! That being said, my son loves this place because of the shark and 'looking in his belly' at the things he has eaten. This place is a bit overwhelming, lots and lots of stuff. If you look hard enough you can find some great, name brand things, shoes, ect. Always find at least one article of clothing that is super cool and not the 'norm' souvenir top. Lots of shells, toys, clothes, bathing suits, shoes, air brush items, and typical souvenir items. It really is one stop shop for all your needs. My little boy even got a pickled baby shark there.
